General Internal Medicine Division Campuses

Mount Sinai Beth Israel

Our mission is to increase the capacity toward optimal health and well-being and we seek to carry out our mission by keeping in alignment with three core principles:

  • Dignity: Human life is valued with compassion and respect
  • Excellence: Continuously pursuing the “next level”
  • Service: Creating a partnership with our patients.

As educators, we are knowledgeable of the most recent advances in clinical medical practice, evidence-based medicine, and accepted practice guidelines. Each year, we train approximately 100 internal medicine residents.

The Mount Sinai Hospital

Mount Sinai’s Division of General Internal Medicine is strongly committed to caring for the whole patient and places special emphasis on providing patient-centered care. The division embraces the mission of Icahn School of Medicine by pursuing an integrated approach to patient care, research, and education. We pursue all dimensions of these three components, considering them inseparable elements of the art and science of medicine. Division of General Internal Medicine faculty have over 50 active research studies across a broad range of patient and population-based research activities spanning the hospital, ambulatory care, and home care settings.
